Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says losing the dressing room is the only thing that would ever make him resign from his job at Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese has come under pressure after a poor start to the season with Saturday’s loss to Southampton the Blues’ sixth defeat of the campaign.
After the defeat, Mourinho insisted that if the club sack him, they would have sacked the best manager in the club history, stressing that the Premier League title defence is not being ripped apart by dressing room rifts
“People can say what they want. I think you should go straight to the players,” he told reporters.
“Get a table at Cobham next week – John Terry doesn’t go to the national team, Diego Costa doesn’t go, Ramires doesn’t go. Ask them.
“If they tell you they don’t trust me, that is the only thing that can make me resign. The only thing. But not fake sources. The players at the table.”
